Ashley Judd speaks out about sexual harassment by studio mogul

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- For the first time, actress Ashley Judd is speaking out about being sexually harassed by a studio mogul.

Judd says it happened in the late 1990s while she was filming "Kiss the Girls."

Judd revealed the details to "Variety," noting the exec called her to his hotel room under the guise of discussing a future movie role.

The situation escalated when he tried to get Judd to watch him take a shower.

Judd did not reveal the name of the man, but said he's "one of our industry's most famous, admired-slash-reviled bosses."

She also told "Variety" that she internalized the shame and learned to eventually stand up for herself.
